The 8th grade AVID students completed a service project by reading and donating books to our preschool program at Manual Academy. The students shared the love of reading with preschoolers and were able to talk to them about their reading interests. Click link to see more pics!
Anatomy students in Mrs Sudrzynski's class had the opportunity to explore their visual senses and test out their peripheral vision, depth perception, pupil dilation, near/far sightedness, and create a model of an eye! In class this week we reviewed eye anatomy and physiology, and this lab was a great way to intertwine both notes and hands on activities. Students did a great job following lab instructions and got very accurate results! They even learned a little bit more about their own eye sight and visual abilities.Click below to check out more pics.
